Even though the Oscars nominees will be officially announced on Tuesday next week, there's still lots of last minute discussion and buzz surrounding what will be nominated and what will win.

As much as I enjoyed The Hurt Locker, I'd much rather see Up in the Air or Inglourious Basterds or Avatar or even Up win Best Picture instead. But if this is any indication, it will win. I'm actually more excited to see what 10 films get nominated for Best Picture, since this is the first year they'll have 10 nominees (and that could shake things up). If 500 Days of Summer or Star Trek or District 9 get nominated, I'll be very happy. Additionally, on the Actress Chart, with Sandra Bullock's win at the SAG Awards, I feel like she's going to get the Oscar. And damnit, that just pisses me off. Give it to Carey Mulligan or Gabourey Sidibe instead!
So there you have it, these are the best Oscars predictions we've seen. What are your picks this year?
